Today I dug up three of my potato's. I planted about five potato's a few months ago, just hoping I might get a few potato's from the plants. Well today I got a big surprise when Grace spotted a potato peeping out of the soil.
My Mum said it would be ok if I dug it up. Well this is what I got (theres a picture of the plants too).
I was so surprised when I saw heaps more potato's as I was digging up the other three.
One reason why I like growing potato's (this would be my fourth season when I've tried to grow potato's) is all you have to do is put the potato's in a dark place, forget about them, rediscover them (by now they should have roots growing out of them), plant the potato's and watch them grow, I mean you don't need to do anything at all really.
You guys should give it a go. You might be surprised :).
